      1) overall, not as flavorful as I would have expected -- would increase amount of spices next time 2) definitely not "just 5 minutes", heck it takes 15 just to boil the potatoes 3) not sure what is the best way to SLOWLY make the sesame seeds "crackle" b/c if you heat the oil to medium-high & toss in the seeds = instant crackle/browning & splattering oil (not a good scene). Best is probably to heat the oil to medium-low, add seeds & let crackle, add other seasonings, then turn up to medium-high (I would avoid high) & add potatoes. 4) other issue is how much oil to use? From my experience, I think the best is to cover the bottom of a large skillet with ~1/3in. of oil (use canola or olive to reduce polyunsat fat).
